  • Hitch Extender and Torklift Camper Frame Tie Down Recommendations for 2014 Ram 3500 Dually
  • Since you already have a 2.5 inch hitch you can use a hitch extender like the part # RP45018 to give you an extension of between 41-48 inches as needed. Assuming you have a short bed 2014 Ram 3500 dually with a 6.7 Cummins and no running boards the frame tie downs you'd need are part numbers # TLD2131 and # TLD3109. If your truck is a different variation though let me know and I'll come up with a better solution.

  • Long Weight Distribution Shank To Act as Hitch Extender
  • You can use a longer weight distribution shank to add extra length like with the Curt # C17122 which is 16 inches long and has a maximum rise of 10-1/4 inches or drop of 6 inches. But you cannot use a hitch extender with a weight distribution system like the part # MT70024.

  • Can Hitch Extender be Used to Help Get Boat Trailer Further into Water to Launch It
  • Depending on how the angle of the ramp changes a super long extension may not be a great idea as it would either point the nose of the trailer up super high or down to low. The longest extension we have for a 2 inch hitch is 18 inches and it would be part # RP11004 that you referenced. Using a hitch extender cuts the tongue weight capacity of the hitch it is used on in half.

  • Can Reese Titan Reduce Sleeve be Used with Weight Distribution
  • The 7028700 reducer is a Reese Towpower product which we don't carry. It's a sister company to the Reese we do carry so there are a lot of similar products between the two. The Reese Titan reducer, part # 58102, being a prime example. I've reached out to Horizon Global (The parent company to both Reese and Reese Towpower) before about these specific products and they weren't able to give me an actual difference between the two but they definitely assured me that the # 58102 reducer...

  • Dual Hitch Receiver Recommendation for Bike Rack and Pop-Up Camper
  • There may be a solution for you but the Roadmaster dual receiver you mentioned is designed for flat towing only and should not be used for towing a camper. The only real option is the Malone 2" Dual Purpose Hitch Receiver # MPG544 which measures 7-1/2" from center of hitch pin hole to center of hitch pin hole; this is a bit more than the 6" you said you had and the most space available between hitch pin holes on a dual receiver. The only thing to keep in mind is that the use of any...

  • Multipurpose 2-Inch Ball Mount to Allow Both Trailer Towing and Hitch-Mount Accessory Use
  • For your Mercedes-Benz Sprinter-based RV we do not offer an actual trailer hitch receiver with dual openings, such as # TLC1204 from TorkLift. For the 2018 Sprinter 3500 chassis, as an example, we do offer single receiver hitches shown on the linked page. Their fits vary depending on wheelbase and bumper type. We DO have hitch adapters like Roadmaster # RM-077-6 that allows both flat towing with a tow bar and use of a hitch-mount accessory like a bike rack or cargo carrier. However,...

  • Hitch Extension Recommendation for 2-1/2 inch Hitch
  • The closest adapter we have to what you need is the Curt hitch adapter part # C45048. This fits a 2-1/2 inch hitch and provides a 2 inch hitch opening but it's minimum length is 24 inches. The only other pre-drilled option is the part # HR26.

  • Recommended Swing Away Hitch Extender Compatible with Cargo Carrier on Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
  • I have just what you need. I recommend the Kuat Pivot Swing Away Hitch Extender for Bike Racks - 2" Hitches # PV20B which is rated for up to 250 lbs and will work well for your cargo carrier. It was created for bike racks, but I confirmed with the manufacturer you can use other accessories like a cargo carrier as long as you stay within the total weight capacity of 250 lbs which will include the aluminum cargo carrier weight and the Yeti cooler as well as everything in that cooler.

  • What is the Weight Limit When Using the Kuat Swing Away Hitch Extender?
  • The Kuat Pivot Swing Away Hitch Extender for Bike Racks - 2" Hitches # PV20B is rated for capacity independent from the trailer hitch receiver it will attach to. The swing away extender is independently rated for 250 lbs. When using this hitch extender, it will reduce your trailer hitch's tongue weight rating by 50%. For example if your have the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75189 which is rated for 500 lbs tongue weight, using the swing away extension would then reduce...

  • Use of a Hitch Extender with a Motorcycle Carrier
  • The hitch extender part # BX88265 will work but it will be close to exceeding the weight capacity of the hitch. You are correct, the tongue weight capacity of the extender is 1,000 lbs but you have to go by the capacity of the weakest component of your setup. It is a good idea to check the vehicle's towing capacity as well. The weakest component in your situation is the tongue weight capacity of the hitch on the vehicle so with the use of an extender your tongue weight is 337 lbs. All...

  • Recommended 3 Inch to 2 Inch Hitch Reducer with 5/8 Inch Pin Hole
  • There is a solution for you, the Buyers Products 3" to 2" Receiver Tube Adapter # 337RTA302 which has a 5/8" hitch pin hole and would give you the security you need. Using the Curt Hitch Receiver Reducer Sleeves - 3" to 2-1/2" or 2" # C45408 with its 3/4" hitch pin hole would not be ideal because the conflicting hitch pin diameters would mean your tow bar would be loose inside the receiver. I have added a link to a video review of the Buyers Products adapter for you to check out as well.

  • Hitch Extension Recommendation for 2018 Ram 3500 with Camper Towing Pontoon Boat Trailer
  • Best hitch extension option we have for your 2018 Ram 3500 with a 2-1/2 inch hitch that has a camper in the bed and is towing a pontoon boat is the Curt extension part # C45048. This extension can be used at either 24 or 34 inches in length and would easily have the capacity for the weight of your 2007 Bennington 2577 RFS Pontoon and trailer. At the 24 inch length it has a capacity of 6,000 lbs and at the 34 inch length 4,500 lbs.

  • Distance Between Hitch Pin Holes on Brophy Hitch Reducer and Extender HR26
  • On the Brophy Hitch Adapter # HR26 the distance between the two hitch pin holes is 7-inches, from hole center to hole center. Overall length end to end is 12-inches. Please note that using this extension will reduce your hitch's weight capacity by one third. This reduction in capacity is a result of the actual hitch load being moved further away from the receiver tube, which causes it to exert more leverage on the hitch.

  • How Does Hitch Extender Typically Affect Trailer Hitch Tongue Weight Capacity
  • I wish we had an exact figure we could give you on that. But the general rule of thumb is that anytime you use a hitch extender you end up cutting the capacity of the hitch by 50 percent. This is due to the added leverage like you mentioned as well as the added movement created in the hitch. The length of the extension does not typically change that much of that figure. We've seen some shorter ones reduce the capacity by only 30 percent but that's pretty far and few between.

  • How to Determine How Much Weight Added to Trailer Near Tongue Adds to Weight On Axle
  • The only way you're going to be able to determine how much weight gets added to the wheels of your trailer is going to be to take the trailer to a weigh station and have just the trailer weighed with and without the 500 lbs you mentioned. There isn't a formula I can plug the numbers in that you mentioned that would accurately predict the additional weight.

  • Can Long Ball Mount be Used with Curt Dual Receiver Adapter
  • An extra long ball mount like the Hidden Hitch # 80232 that you referenced can indeed be used with the Curt Dual Receiver Adapter # D-192 and will provide you with a good solution to gaining the clearance you need in front of the trailer for your bike rack. The longer ball mount shouldn't be an issue with the adapter but one thing you will need to keep in mind is that using the Curt Dual Receiver Adapter is going to cut the trailer hitch capacity by 50 percent.

  • Will the Thule Apex Bike Rack Work With The Yakima BackSwing
  • We have not physically tested the Thule Apex Bike Rack with the Yakima BackSwing Swing Away Hitch Extender part # Y02483 so I cannot confirm an exact fit but I do not see any apparent issue in doing so. However, the Yakima BackSwing will reduce your trailer hitch's weight capacity by 50% so you will need to keep this in mind while loading your bikes. If the weight of your bikes and bike rack exceeds 50% of the trailer hitch's tongue weight capacity then you may be interested in the...

  • Recommended 2-1/2 Inch Trailer Hitch Extension and Wiring for Boat Trailer Behind In-Bed Camper
  • It sounds like you need about a fairly long extender and there unfortunately is not an extender that isn't also a reducer for your 2-1/2 inch hitch receiver. My recommendation is to use the Curt Hitch Extension and Reducer for 2-1/2" Trailer Hitches - 24" to 34" Long # C45048 which has the same capacities as the similar Reese # RP45292 and then use a more cost effective option for your ball mount like the MaxxTow Adjustable 2-Ball Mount - 2" Hitch # MT70380. This will give you an adjustable...

  • Is There a Hitch Extender That Can Tow a 7,000 lb Trailer
  • If you cut the Reese hitch extender part # RP45292 down to 24 inches and use your weight distribution system you'd have enough capacity for a 7,000 lb travel trailer as the extender has an 8k capacity when used at the 24 inch length and when using a WD system. You should note that the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of your truck will need to be considered as additional tongue weight so you'd need to make sure your WD system can accommodate that additional weight.

  • Trailer Hitch Bike Rack Recommendation that Can Swing Out and Away from 2019 Ford F-250
  • What you described really close to a great solution, but you can't use the Yakima BackSwing # Y02483 with a hitch extender as it basically is already a hitch extender. So your best option would be a swing bike rack from Yakima like the SwingDaddy # Y02464 used with the Brophy Hitch Extender # HR26 and the anti-rattle device part # SHP2082. This will give you a solid setup that can swing out and away from the rear of the truck and can carry up to 4 bikes. Normally with extenders you have...

  • Hitch Extender Recommendation for 2017 Ford F-250 Towing 8,000 lb Trailer
  • If you cut the Reese hitch extender part # RP45292 down to the 24 inch length and use your weight distribution system this setup would be good for 8,000 lbs like you said you have. But you'll have to make sure you do not exceed 8,000 lbs. This is the highest capacity option we have that wouldn't require replacing your truck hitch and using a TorkLift SuperTruss Hitch Extension # TLE1521. This has more capacity at 14,000 lb when used with a WD system. The trailer hitch you'd need for...

  • Hitch Extender That Can Use Weight Distribution and Tow Horse Trailer
  • For a 24 inch hitch extender the best option is the Curt part # C45048 cut down to the 24 inch length. This has a capacity of 8,000 lb trailer weight when used with a WD system like you mentioned. Since this is the only extender option that's going to work we have to build everything around it. This means you'll need to install a 2-1/2 inch hitch on your 2013 GMC Sierra 2500. For that you'd want the Curt part # C15860 which is a fit for your truck. Due to the weight of your camper you'll...

  • Solution for Gaining Clearance to Open Hatch of Honda Pilot with Trailer Attached
  • As you mentioned in your question the Blue Ox Hitch Extender # BX88265 should only be used for hitch mounted accessories (bike racks, cargo carriers, etc) or for flat towing. Flat towing refers to pulling another vehicle with all 4 of its wheels on the ground, typically behind an RV. Since all the wheels are on the ground of the towed vehicle a flat towing setup doesn't create much tongue weight at all so the hitch extender is strong enough to support the weight. Blue Ox has determined...

  • Best Hitch Extender Option Recommendation for 7,000 lb Trailer for 2-1/2 inch Hitch

We don't have a way to get you exactly 16 inches unfortunately. With weight distribution at 24 inches of length this extender has a capacity of 8,000 lbs which would be enough for you.

Most extenders don't have a whole lot of weight capacity but this one when at 24 inches in length has a capacity of 6,000 lbs. Most likely this would be enough length but without knowing more info it's harder to say.

There is an 18 inch extension, the Curt Extender for 2" Receivers -18" Long # C45796 which you can use with a bike rack.

  • Can Kuat Pivot Swing Away Extender be Used with 2 Inch Cargo Carrier on Class B Motorhome
  • The Kuat Pivot Swing Away Hitch Extender # PV20B that you referenced can indeed be used with a 2 inch cargo carrier. The issue though is that the extender (along with the other similar model we have available from Yakima) is not rated for use behind an RV. The primary reason for this is that on most RVs the hitch is going to be quite a bit back from the rear axle which leads to a lot more movement and stress on any accessory that's mounted to it during travel.

  • For your 2005 Mini Cooper convertible only a light-duty 1-1/4-inch Class I hitch is offered, the Curt model # C11126, which fits the non-S-Series convertible version. But if the trailer you want to tow has a 2-inch coupler, this just means that it requires a 2-inch hitch ball like # A-82 which will work in ball mount # C45521. This is the recommend ball mount for the Curt Class I hitch. You do not need any sort of adapter to use a 2-inch hitch ball on your Mini. In cases when a hitch...

  • Can Lower Hitch Opening of MaxxTow Dual Hitch MT70070 Use Tow Dolly and Upper Carry Bike Rack
  • Yes, the MaxxTow Dual Hitch Extender # MT70070 that you referenced can tow a trailer with the lower hitch opening and then carry a bike rack with the upper opening. That's actually exactly what this was designed for! You should note that using this extension will reduce your hitch's weight capacity by 50 percent though.

  • Recommended Front Mounted Hitch Extender for Winch
  • For your F-350 with Push Bumper the new 9 inch gap to your front mounted hitch receiver on your vehicle will require the Advantage SportsRack Hitch Extender for 2" Trailer Hitches - 11" Long # HE6000. This will give you an 11 inch extension and will change the leverage of your winch vertical load strength and reduce that by about 50%. The line pull strength will not noticeably change.

  • Which Dual Hitch Adapter Has the Highest Tongue Weight Capacity
  • The dual hitch adapter we carry with the highest tongue weight capacity is the Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter part # RM-077-6 for 6" rise or part # RM-077-8 for 8" rise. They both have a 400 lb tongue weight capacity. Please note that this adapter is designed for flat towing only. If you can give me a better idea of what you are using the adapter for we may have alternative options if the above will not work.

  • Tongue Weight Capacity of the Titan Hitch Box Extension
  • We currently offer two trailer hitch extenders for a 2-1/2" receiver tube opening that will provide you with around a 36" extension. For this, we have the Titan Hitch Box Extension part # RP45292 for a 24" - 34" extension or the Titan Hitch Box Extension part # RP45018 for a 41" - 48" extension.

The class I and class II receivers look identical just the Draw-Tite class I hitches have a weldstop integrated to keep you from using class II accessories that are rated higher. Yakima does not make a class I compatible bike rack so that will also ensure your hitch is a class II. It sounds like you want to use a hitch expander like # C45785 which you can do.

  • Recommended Extended Ball Mount or Hitch Extender for Towing Boat Trailer
  • For your 2018 Tahoe and boat trailer needing a longer extension between them I recommend the Hidden Hitch Ball Mount - 3/4" Rise, 2" Drop - 15-3/4" Long - 6,000 lbs # 80232. Having a longer ball mount like this will not reduce the capacity of your hitch at all. This will give you a length of 15-3/4 inches from the center of the ball to the hitch pin hole. For a compatible hitch ball the shank needs to be 1 inch diameter for this mount. I recommend the 2 inch ball # 40038 or 2-5/16...

  • Recommended Hitch Extender for Kuat Transfer Bike Rack with Lowered Tailgate of 2017 Nissan Frontier

This will move the hitch pin hole centers 18 inches and will also give you a tongue weight restriction of 350 lbs. Your Kuat Transfer 2-Bike # TS02G will work just fine with that restriction.

It can give you either a 24 inch or 34 inch long extension and will fit your hitch as it was designed for 2-1/2 inch hitches. I attached a picture that shows a similar setup using this extension for you to check out as well. You'll also need to extend the 7-way too with a kit like the part # TLW6021.

  • Can Chains be Connected to Curt Hitch Extender

Keep in mind you will need Pin and Clip # C21510 in order to attach the extender to your current hitch, and that an extender is going to reduce the capacity of your current trailer hitch by 50 percent.

  • Can an Adapter be Used to Carry a 2 Bike Rack in 1-1/4 Receiver on a Mazda CX-5
  • I do have a solution for you to carry both of your bikes with your Mazda CX-5 but unfortunately an adapter like part # HTAD isn't the way that I recommend going. Not only does it cut the weight rating of your trailer hitch in half, it will also cause your bike rack to have more movement during travel. Since we don't carry Allen bike racks we don't have an adapter so instead I recommend changing out your bike rack for something like the Yakima HoldUp # Y02445 which fits a 1-1/4" receiver...

You will need the pin # PC2 for the 1-1/4" end and pin # PC3 for the 2" end if you don't already have them. Please note that adapters will reduce the weight capacity of your trailer hitch by 50% so if you only have 200 lbs of tongue weight now, once you install the adapter that will be reduced to 100 lbs.

So when the adapter is in the drop position and the lower opening is the longer one the distance is 10 inches from the top of the shank to the top of the lower opening and then 2 inches to the upper opening. If you flip the adapter the distance is then also 10 inches of rise and 2 inches of drop. Since...

The only type of hitch size adapter that does reduce capacity are ones that go from a smaller size to a bigger size. You're going to be pretty close to the capacity of your truck so a weight distribution system would be a very good idea. For a weight distribution system rated well for 1,500 lbs of tongue weight the Reese part # RP66075. This...

  • Can the Roadmaster 10 Drop/Rise Adapter be Used for a Cargo Carrier and Bike Rack
  • You could potentially use the Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter # RM-077-10 for a cargo carrier and bike rack but you will be reducing the space on your carrier (like you said) and you are limited to 400 lbs of tongue weight. This includes the weights of your carrier, bike rack, plus the cargo/bikes that you will be carrying. Since 10" is quite a bit of drop I am guessing that your tow vehicle is a bit taller like a lifted pickup. If this is the case then you may be interested in...

If your tow vehicle is going to be a motorhome you'll need to be sure you are using a bike rack rated for the rougher ride quality at the rear of a motorhome like the Swagman XC part # S64650.

There is a very slight bend in the bar but not enough to make a cargo carrier such as the Curt # C18152 or Surco # 52018 tilt upward, particularly if they are loaded with cargo.
